Welding is the most widely used process to create permanent joints between metal parts and is used across the full range of engineering industries. Learners studying this pathway shall develop skills to be able to mark out and cut using intermediate and advance methods. Students shall gain the essential practical and theoretical skills in a wide variety of welding processes, ranging from gas shielded arc welding to manual metal arc, laser and submerged arc welding in order to assemble and join metals to a standard. Students will also understand common flaws in welded joints and how to assess if a welded joint is satisfactory. Engineering and Manufacturing are vital to the UK economy where a variety of businesses operate in an industry that is worth over £1 trillion annually to the UK. This course develops both practical and technical skills to enable students to progress in their chosen field.
Learners will be given the opportunity to develop both their skills and knowledge to design, innovate and analyse solutions that are essential to modern day life.
